Riivolution Generator

I have remade the page, Riivolution. I think that there is very little documentation on this "Riivolution Generation", and that you should make a small description page, with possibly a download.
The very kind person, ★Shadow★ (talk) 00:47, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
The generator is only a part of my MKW-Fun-Patcher and not a standalone software. The algorithm is very easy:
  1. Extract the original image
  2. Set the modified-time to a date in the past (1.1.2008)
  3. Run the patching process
  4. Copy the modified files into the SD-Card folder.
  5. Create a XML based on the list of modified files.
Wiimm (talk) 13:13, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Ah, so it's part of your distribution.

No time for CT until weekend

Since some days and until the next weekend I haven't any time for the Wiki and for other CT related things. I'll visit the wiki rarely. The only CT thing I'll do is playing my weekly tournaments.

Permission and Help

Hi there, Wiimm. I would like permission to use your track, N64 Wario Stadium, in a distribution I'm currently making. I also want you to help me with some slot patching, as I'm having trouble with that. Thanks- Miles5x5 (talk) 8:28, 15 February 2014 (EST)

  1. There is a generally permission to use the tracks of this wiki in any distribution.
  2. At the moment it is not clear, what you mean with slot patching. So ask with more details, but not me, ask the forums or at any related discussion page of this wiki and more people can help you.

CTGPR 1.02 reverse engineering help

I'm trying to reverse-engineer CTGPR 1.02 to locate the Ocarina/Gecko detector (blackscreens on Wii but not using Dolphin's cheat generator) or modify the TEXT2 to add the lap count functionality. I located the cheat codes necessary for the lap count modifier in 1.03, but I cannot apply them on Wii without the black screen. Ideally, it could be integrated with the existing TEXT2 patch.

On Dolphin, JITIL (necessary for CTGP menu system to work) causes random crashes with the lap count cheat (extracted from CTT), on both normal, CTT, and CTGP ISOs.

I don't know any ASM, only C++ and Python.

--PretendingToBePro (talk) 20:56, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

The source code for CTGP-R 1.02 will be released very soon, reverse engineering is not necessary.
Chadderz (talk) 07:02, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Interesting... Not that I will care very much once WFC goes down forever. The only significant difference for me between Wiimms and CTGPR is that the latter has much more online popularity. I'm sure that will change if (that's a big if) (1) Wiimm sets up a server, and (2) he disallows CTGPR from it. And anyway, when did the 1.02 converter appear, and is it different from Sasalot's?
I will never exclude any distribution! That's not my way. My way is open knowledge and source.
Wiimm (talk) 23:39, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I expected. Also, why wasn't the converter on the main page of CTGPR v1.02?
Looks like I'll have to wait on my converter until the source is released. Then it will be far easier. But sorting out 216 tracks is not very easy, even with the CTGP patch fully recreated. Script? --PretendingToBePro (talk) 02:19, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Slow Motion Bug

I'm Not trying to ignore you, I've just been busy as of lately. I have all of the tracks to fix on my list, plus essentially all of my old ones are being remade. I'm trying to just focus on one at a time, starting with the older ones. --ChaosShadow23 (talk) 12:27, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Good to read this -- Wiimm (talk) 23:07, 3 March 2014 (UTC)


As mentioned in the talk page of Mario Kart 64 Wii, I would like to thank you, but I am still not getting the patching process. Can you make a text document of how this works (like a tutorial), then send it to me via talk page? --Michael (talk) 04:21, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Short answer for the moment:
There is a difference between the slot and the track. later is referenced by the original slot.
  • S=T means: move the original track of slot T to the new slot S. This is an exchange operation.
  • S=T,U,V is a shortcut for S=T, (S+1)=U, (S+2)=V'.
Multiple commas are only for easer reading.
Best is to play with for example wstrt tracks -T 21=41,51 (watch out the slot numbers).

Nintendo Wifi captured data

Hey Wiimm, I wanted to ask you if you needed some data from Dolphin of joining and getting the data for the new FC at start when you go online and some Races that I did. I have them at .cap format. Does that help you? --TheMetaPirate (talk) 17:23, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanx, but for the moment I have a lot of dumps, because Collect them since December 2012. Its total about 16 GiB bzip compressed. I also have many videos to remember, what happened.
Wiimm (talk) 19:02, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Quick question

Hello, just wanted to ask you which category do I need (now) to put if:

  • I find a page with a broken download link ? (that I'll remove)
  • I find a page with no download ?

thank you if you reply me back. Avenir (talk) 19:03, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

  1. Remove the broken DL; then you have 2.
  2. The question is: Are there any other good infos about the track/font/...?
    • An article without any infos is a deletion candidate (mark it with: [[category:Delete]]).
    • Have it only some, but to few information, mark it a stub ([[category:Stub]]).
    • Otherwise all needed infos are available, just leave the article, because out wiki reflects all about custom MKWii.
Wiimm (talk) 08:31, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
And, is a page with no download link available a stub ?? because when you tell me "Remove the broken DL" How will it be possible to find back that page, shall a category for this type of page be made ? (If it's not already done) well... that's not a quick question anymore sorry.Avenir (talk) 19:13, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
In my eyes, a page without DL is not automatically a stub. But here are differences between mods and other people. A stub is a page with a lack of several things.
Wiimm (talk) 20:47, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Custom Track Archive Questions?

Since I'm (again, yawwwnnn...) working on the CTGPR 1.03 ISO converter, and the distribution is encrypted, I'm planning to manually download each and every track manually from your archives and reassemble them into a distribution. In fact, I've already downloaded them all and just need to sort and assemble them. Since there are like 216 tracks in CTGPR 1.03, manually sorting them all is not an option for me at least.

Now I have some questions. What does [ctt12] mean? Cam Tom Troy modified?

(Partially relevant, not sure if you care) Also, do you have any suggestions for automatically searching for the correct track in each case? Search for the root string, then do a ranking algorithm based on when it was uploaded, and how well it matches? The CTGPR 1.03 page formats track names a bit differently from your archive, for example not including authors, which means I have to do an approximate head match.

On the other hand, I could crowd-source it, but I don't think I can find people.

--PretendingToBePro (talk) 00:24, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

  1. "ctt12" means: Source is "Cam Tom Troy v1.2" (never released)
  2. Try for my private selection.
Wiimm (talk) 08:56, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Unrelated but important: What is the maximum number of tracks supported by your CTCODE modifier? --PretendingToBePro (talk) 19:10, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I think its (256 - 2 - 10) = 244 when removing the original tracks. There are 10 battle tracks and two reserved IDs (0xff and 0x43) for Wifi actions. -- Leseratte (talk) 19:19, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
There are 8 reserved slots, 32 orig and 10 arenas: 256-8-32-10=206 ⇒ rountded to *4 = 204 ct + 32 orig tracks
Wiimm (talk) 20:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Then how does CTGPR 1.03 support 32+216 tracks? Delete arenas? Remove original tracks altogether? (no) Remove reserved tracks? (It looks like there are 4 reserved and 1 special [n64 RR]) Code an entirely new 16-bit track ID system? (doesn't look like it)
Also what about Chadderz/MrBean and the promised source code of 1.02?
--PretendingToBePro (talk) 22:35, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Don't know, what ctgpr 1.03 does. And no, I haven't seen the sources yet. -- Wiimm (talk) 07:26, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Also will I experience problems playing online with someone whose speed modifier is very slightly different (as in I round the 1.5 differently from Bean/Chad)? Can I tell what speed modifier is being used through a WiFi dump?
--PretendingToBePro (talk) 00:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Because the limit on 2 bytes, the speed modifier use only a few bits for the mantissa. Command "wszst float 1.0 0x3f81" will help with floating point calculations.
About WIFI: I have never seen this value.
Wiimm (talk) 07:26, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
And in "N64 Royal Raceway v2.1 (Baoulettes,Wiimm) [62].wbz", what does the [62] mean? --PretendingToBePro (talk) 23:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
The section "Name Scheme" at the archive sites. "62" Runs only at slot 6.2 -- Wiimm (talk) 07:49, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Permission to create a new file-format page

moved to: Talk:HAL DAT (File Format)

May I create a BRSAR File Format Page? -- Suigetsu, the transformation (talk) 20:45, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but/and don't forget to edit:
and perhaps more.
A note for others: In general don't ask to create a MKWii related page, just do it. We are the community!
Wiimm (talk) 22:01, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
speaking of other file formats...
mind if I create a section for "non-MKW File Formats" and rename the existing to "MKW File Formats"??
I think this would help out the community by loads.
(the more knowledge we have, the better)
Tcll (talk) 00:56, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I would rather say add the "non-MKWii File Formats" category but keeping the "File Formats" category for MKWii File Formats.
Tock (talk) 01:28, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
alright sure, glad I asked :)
Tcll (talk) 01:32, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Unrelated File Formats Page Created

so I've created the page here: List of Unrelated File Formats
but I'm not sure about where to link it up in the wiki :/

Tcll (talk) 01:58, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

I think it is better to have one page as overview about all file formats, as long the page is not to large. So I have merged List of Unrelated File Formats into List of File Formats.
And don't forget to add [[category:File Format]] to file format pages.
Wiimm (talk) 08:51, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Wiimm: as long the page is not to large
then I don't think it was a good call to merge the pages...
(that's one reason decided to make it separate, because I expect it to get larger than the related formats page)
EDIT: btw, thanks for the heads up :)
Tcll (talk) 14:25, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I think this page is very small. And think as a foreign user: He visit the site, search with the browser a file format and found it without visiting a second site.

N64 Royal Raceway

I just finished a version of N64 Royal Raceway (Baoulettes & LuigiM), removing the DKM rocks for people who don't want better gameplay and/or just want it simple. This is NOT, I repeat, NOT to replace v2.1. I call it...v2.1.easy. I also cleaned the KCL as well as there were some face-down roads. What do you think? --Michael (talk) 16:58, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Do it! -- Wiimm (talk) 21:11, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

KMP Cleaning

Um...this may be a completely idiotic question, but how do you clean the KMP? Is it the same procedure with KCL? --Michael (talk) 21:09, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Try this: wkmpt encode -o --kmp fix-all [filename].kmp --Suigetsu, the transformation (talk) 21:50, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Tried, and it failed. The bugs are still there... --Michael (talk) 22:15, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
It won't fix all the bugs that a KMP has. --Suigetsu, the transformation (talk) 22:44, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
I call "wkmpt check" or "wszst check", look at the warnings and remove or fix it manually with an text editor.
And if I know, that objects are outside the visible world, I remove them too.
Wiimm (talk) 23:44, 1 May 2014 (UTC)


When you mean by "old profiles" it profiles that existed before the Nintendo worldwide server shutdown? --Michael (talk) 20:27, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Mk8wiikitest.png Mk8wiikitest2.png Mk8wiikitest3.png

Here is a really simple logo based on the one we use on this wiki. I tried uploading it on the MK8 side, but the upload failed. (Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/1/11".) --Jefe (talk) 19:08, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Also made a white version, to better differentiate between the Wii and mk8 logos.--Jefe (talk) 19:26, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Third version the "8" is less see-through. --Jefe (talk) 19:46, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanx -- @Tock: you decision, I like all
Wiimm (talk)
Well I like the first and second Version your turn Wiimm :P
Tock (talk) 21:39, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Mk8wiikitest4.png Mk8wiikitest5.png

Two more variations. I set the opacity of the '8' overlay to 63%. I also moved the custom mario part over slightly so it would better match the original. It was 50% in 1 and 2. 75% in 3. Also Yellow version with 63%.

However, there is one thing that bothers me about the original logo, it's how the shadow is cut off on the right edge. I can fix that, and put the fixed shadow in both version. (Would be a bit easier if I had the photoshop/original document of the first logo, but only really need for a high res version.) --Jefe (talk) 22:04, 5 August 2014 (UTC)


Shadow is fixed in all test mk8 logos, as well as the normal logo used in the "welcome" template. You may need to refresh to see the changed images. You will need to change the logo on the MKWii template to use the new version, since I can't change that one. --Jefe (talk) 22:37, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I go to bed now, but I have one last question:
What is the official name of the new wiki:
  1. Custom Marion Kart 8 Wiki
  2. Custom Marion Kart 8 Wiiki
  3. Custom MK8 Wiki
  4. Custom MK8 Wiiki
  5. ...
The logo should reflect this name.
P.S.: I like the yellow one!
Wiimm (talk) 23:41, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Good point. Custom Mario Kart 8 Wiiki sounds good to me, and these logos match that name. To change the text, I would need the source file for the original logo. If you don't have it, I'd have to make a new logo from scratch.
I think, no matter what the choice of name, that the logos should be in the same style. So if I change the MK8 logo, I the MKWii logo would also need to be updated to match.--Jefe (talk) 00:42, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Some thoughts:
  • I like the yellow log, because it is different from the CT-Wiiki logo at the first moment. This helps to determine the current wiki very fast.
  • "Wiiki" is a combination of "Wii"+"Wiki". So I prefer the simply "Wiki" for MK8.
    • "Alternatives: Wuku, Wi8i, W8ki, MK8wiki, MK∞Wiki
Wiimm (talk) 10:25, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Sadly someone provided us with the Logo and didnt sent us the source. I agree that Wiiki is too much something for the Wii so I would prefer "Custom Mario Kart 8 Wiki"
Tock (talk) 10:29, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
But you can't make and/or play custom tracks on any other Mario Kart other than Super Mario Kart... --Michael (talk) 11:45, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
One logical error by me: MK8 is "Mario Kart Wii U", so "Wiiki" is also possible for mk8. But I like a normal "Wiki" more.
Wiimm (talk) 12:14, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Personally, I like the symmetry of both being "Wiikis." However, since it's at least possible to add other MK wikis, the "Wiiki" thing does break down.
So here are my thoughts on logo designs. All MK wikis should have a similar base logo. This identifies them as being related wikis. Each logo should have something distinctive that ties into the game it is for - the MK8 logo has the "8" loop, and the MKWii logo should have some element from the MKWii box art or the Wii in general. It would make sense for the "Wii" in "Wiiki" to have the actual Wii logo incorporated into it; it would simultaneously explain the name "Wiiki" and why the term isn't used on the other wikis. Additionally, each logo should be distinctive enough to identify the wiki at a glance; color is important here.--Jefe (talk) 20:32, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm new to creating custom tracks, and would like some help

Hey Wiimm, I'm new to creating custom tracks, and would like someone to guide me in making them. Knowing you've made so many custom tracks and helped so many people, can you help me to make some custom tracks? So far I've stuck to texture hacking, as my first texture hack, Alien Run, will be released later this week, but I want to make custom tracks as well. So can you help me create some please?
